Re: The outlawing of male turkey decoys

The convention was full of gun mount reaper fans. Some of them you could control the fan by squeezing a grip that made fan go up and down. Who is going to be the first to paint their face in a tailfeather pattern with a surrounding corona of tailfeathers sorta like Little Miss/Master Sunflower? Tha...

Re: Yildiz .410 pattern

Clay, didn't you have your Yildiz dipped? One of the features of these guns that I like, other than great looking walnut, is the corrosion resistant finish. Satin chrome on the barrel's outside and anodized alloy on the action. Your Bobwhite's barrel has a chrome finish as well. Gil

Re: Anyone ever experimented with leaving the csd100 wad unslit?

In reloading the 10 ga. years ago, we tried a split that divided the cup into two petals. Most of the time, it would flip and punch a hole through the patterning board as it became a lead weighted badminton shuttlecock as the payload stayed in the wad and led with the gas seal. Stick with four petal...

Re: Shotgun sights

If you go with the FFIII, there is no better or more practical mount than the one made by Sumtoy. It is a low mount contoured to fit the shape of the receiver and has the 4 short corner posts tailor made to accept the FFIII, etc. Someone who has the Vortex can tell you if it is interchangeable on th...

Re: Burris Fastfire deal

The time and effort of removing the FFII to install new batteries and then re-zeroing makes the III more desirable despite more costs.

Re: Shotgun sights

Glad someone pointed out the need for clean trigger break. Reasonably safe amount of pull, but glass-like break with no creep, will help avoid misses.

Re: Shotgun sights

The OP mentioned not "getting down on the gun" to line up the sights. A feature of the red dots, those that are parallax free, and most are, is the dot doesn't have to be centered in the optic. It can appear anywhere in the "window" and as long as it is on what you want to hit, it will do so regardl...

Re: Shotgun sights

Presbyopia is a natural occurrence of aging when the eye won't clearly focus on near objects. It starts at about 40. Don't spend another season without a red dot. Your inclination towards either Vortex or FF is good. The lead flies where the dot lies or in your case, TSS. I started out failing to se...

Re: Federal TSS - Just thinking outloud...

The big ammo companies have proprietary powders made for them that may be similar to what we handloaders use, but I doubt if anyone can say exactly what the equivalent over the counter powder would be in their loads. They are pretty much unrecognizable and maybe so on purpose. Gil

Re: Remington declaring bankruptcy?

I bought an 870 SuperMag (Express) NIB from Bass Pro and the gun wouldn't cycle Remington Game Loads, but would cycle Winchester Promos. Go figure; the perfect storm of cheap shells and crappy gun made by the same company. Gil

Re: .410 shotgun help

Would you guys have any reservations getting a shotgun that only had a fixed full barrel? No, that's what I started out with on my Yildiz single shot. You have to try it and see. A buddy gets over 130 in the 10 out of his Mossy 500 .410 fixed full. I was getting a three shot average of 100 in the 1...

Re: 20ga vs 12ga with TSS?

The 1 5/8 #8 TSS load has plenty of 10" ring density at 40 yards and beyond. My 13/16 oz. .410 (3 lbs. 3 oz.) will put 120 #8 in the 10 ring at 40 yards. I got rid of my SBE 12 five seasons ago. Dead is dead and I drove my Chevy to the levee, etc. Gil

Re: .410 shotgun help

I keep wanting to cut my yildiz to 21" so that when folded both the stock and barrel are even. Seems easier to stuff in a backpack or a golf bag, haha. Sending off to Sumtoy today though and think I'll stick with the 24" in hopes of maybe a few more pellets hitting home. I guess I can no longer say...

Re: .410 shotgun help

I see no reason to have a barrel shorter than 24" on a break-action shotgun. Might not make a difference from a ballistics point if it were shorter, but a 3" break-action is 3+" or more shorter overall than a 24" auto or pump. I don't see a hunting situation where a shorter barrel makes a difference...

I'm going to second 2shooter's recommendation with the caveat that a handful of owners of the gun have had Intermittent failure to fire due to what we believe is a weak hammer spring. I would shoot the hell out of it with factory loads to determine whether or not that is an issue with the gun before...
